NetCheck v2019.02.09 for #Linux, #Mac and #Windows adds ability change ping URL and interval (20 to 300 seconds) via the command-line arguments and notification tray icon menu. The Android version can already change the URL (but not the interval).
Yesterday, pinging https://google.com with a HEAD request did not work. GET had no problem. No https domain links were working with HEAD.
So, I switched to using URLs of main logo images from top sites. That worked.
I have now added an option for the user to change the ping URL. NetCheck works again.
- All platforms: Newer icons.
- Android: 5-second autoclose with cancel function. Option to launch sound volume settings.
- Linux/Mac/Windows: Optional command-line parameters “noaudio” and “nopopup” to disable audio and popup notifications. For example, any of these
java -jar NetCheck.jar noaudio java -jar NetCheck.jar nopopup java -jar NetCheck.jar noaudio nopopup
